Old World Names — Puerto Rican Genealogy

Old School Puerto Rican Names

How do you even pronounce that?

After looking at the censuses from the 19th and early 20th centuries while developing my large Puerto Rican family tree, it is obvious that many of the older names have not survived the turn of this century. Many older Spanish first names have no English equivalent (which I listed on another page) as they are derived from Greek and Latin and very old world such as Telésforo, Hipólito, and Eluteria. A great many of them are derived from Christian terms as Catholicism had a tight hold on naming practices for centuries. However, as times change, so do naming practices. In the mid to late 1900’s, many Puerto Rican children began to be given more typical American-English derived names.  The 21st century has seen a influx of original, hybrid names that are unique to the children who have them. Long gone are the days of being named for the holy nativity. While the religious names have fallen out of favor, the natural-world names such as Luna and Sol are still as popular as ever.  

The etymology of names is interesting in and of itself but if you look closer, names give genealogists insight into the population living in a particular town.

    About Spanish baby names

    Hispanic Name Traditions

    Today, people choose any name they like, regardless of their cultural background. However, there are some traditional names that are often chosen in Hispanic culture, especially surnames and religious names. Naming the firstborn after the father or mother is still a strong tradition in many Hispanic families. The son was named after his father, and then he was given his own middle name. Some families instead choose to give the child his own first name and then give him a middle name. In Latin America, many families choose names from the Bible or from the names of Roman Catholic saints as their first or middle name. nine0003

    Hispanic surname traditions

    In a number of Latin American countries, families give their child a first and middle name, followed by the father’s surname and the mother’s maiden name. For example, in the given name Jorge Carlos Ríos Martinez, Jorge Carlos is the first and middle name, followed by the father’s surname, Ríos, and the mother’s maiden name, Martinez.

    Choosing a Hispanic name for your baby

    Choosing a name is a special challenge because it will forever be a part of your baby. If you have a Spanish-language name, you might also want to think about how it’s pronounced and, if it’s important to you, whether the name is difficult to pronounce for non-Spanish speakers. Take time to think carefully about the name, its meaning, and how it sounds with the child’s last name. nine0003

    🎖▷ Why you don’t have to worry about weight gain with Lamictal


    7,192 2 min read

    If you’re worried that taking Lamictal (lamotrigine) might cause weight gain, there’s good news. It probably won’t affect your weight much. If anything, you’re more likely to lose weight due to Lamictal than gain weight, but either way, the changes are likely to be pretty small.
    The effect of Lamictal on weight has been little studied and various clinical trials have found minimal effect. In fact, some researchers even considered the drug as a possible remedy for obesity and as a remedy for overeating. This information should be reassuring for people with bipolar disorder, as many of the medications used to treat this condition can cause weight gain. nine0003

    Lamictal findings and weight gain or loss
    Lamictal is an anticonvulsant that can be used to treat seizures such as epilepsy. It is also used as a mood stabilizer for bipolar disorder.
    In the first clinical trials with the drug, 5 percent of adults with epilepsy lost weight while taking Lamictal, while 1 to 5 percent of patients with bipolar I disorder gained weight while taking the drug. The researchers do not disclose how much weight patients have gained or lost. nine0004 Meanwhile, a 2006 study comparing the effects on weight of Lamictal, lithium, and placebo found that some Lamictal-treated patients gained weight, some lost weight, and most remained about the same weight. Weight changes are usually not many pounds anyway. Obese patients taking Lamictal lost an average of four pounds, while the weight of non-obese patients remained virtually unchanged.
    Relationship between weight gain and other bipolar drugs
    Weight gain from medications used to treat bipolar disorder is unfortunately quite common. Some mood stabilizers commonly used for bipolar disorder, especially lithium and Depakote (valproate), carry a high risk of weight gain.
    In addition, the atypical antipsychotics Clozaril (clozapine) and Zyprexa (olanzapine) tend to cause significant weight gain in people who take them. Finally, some antidepressants, notably Paxil (paroxetine) and Remeron (mirtazapine), have been associated with weight gain. nine0004 Therefore, if you are already overweight, you and your psychiatrist may want to consider additional weight gain when determining your bipolar medication regimen. Based on this, Lamictal may be a good choice.
    Lamictal as a possible treatment for obesity
    Lamictal has also been studied as a possible treatment for obesity in people without epilepsy or bipolar disorder.
    In a small 40-person clinical trial conducted in 2006, researchers randomly assigned participants to receive either lamiktal or placebo for up to 26 weeks. Each participant in the study had a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 40, placing them in the obese group to the level of severe obesity. Those who took Lamictal lost an average of just over 10 pounds. Those who took the placebo lost about 7 pounds in the meantime, so while those who took Lamictal lost more weight, they didn’t lose all that much more. nine0004 Another study in 2009 looked at Lamictal as a remedy for overeating. This study involved 51 people with the condition that 26 of them received Lamictal, and 25 — placebo.
    Those who took Lamictal lost more weight than those who took placebo (about 2.
